ProSight Duo Access Security
Progent's ProSight Duo catalog of services integrates advanced access security technology from Duo, a Cisco Systems subsidiary, to deliver multi-factor authentication solutions. Two-factor authentication is one of the pillars of zero-trust cybersecurity design. 2FA utilizes separate channel identity confirmation to provide a second level of security beyond just passwords. This counters the most frequent sources of cybersecurity break-ins such as phishing, social engineering, and stolen credentials.
Duo's single-tap Mobile Push application streamlines access security
Duo's push technology minimizes time and distraction by allowing users to verify their identity simply by pressing "Approve" on the authentication prompt on their personal smartphone or wearable. This single-touch procedure does away with the need to open an email or text and transcribe a security code by hand.
Progent's ProSight Duo family includes three subscription-based services that progressively add features. ProSight Duo MFA allows organizations to deploy Duo's two-factor authentication (2FA) platform to guard all users while offering basic access tools, centralized management, and fast endpoint provisioning. ProSight Duo Access supports all the capabilities of ProSight Duo MFA plus adaptive authentication controls and endpoint health checking. ProSight Duo Beyond brings the ability to identify corporate as opposed to personal devices, deny access to untrusted devices, and give users secure and transparent access to your inside apps. Progent is a Duo Managed Service Provider and can help your business to plan, deploy and manage an advanced ID authentication solution that provides the highest level of access security without disrupting your users.
The vast majority of cybersecurity break-ins exploit compromised passwords. Every managed service plan in Progent's ProSight Duo family of access security solutions can eliminate your risky reliance on password protection by allowing two-factor authentication. With 2FA activated, when you sign into a protected online account and enter your password you are asked to verify your identity by means of a device that you have exclusive ownership of and that uses a different ("out-of-band") network channel. A wide selection of devices can be utilized as this additional form of ID validation such as an iOS or Android smartphone or wearable, a token, a landline telephone, etc. You can enroll multiple verification devices.
ProSight Duo two-factor authentication provides an additional layer of security
After you confirm your identity via your out-of-band device, you are allowed to run your app or access your VPN or remote desktop connection. With the Duo Mobile app's push notification service activated, you can simply press "Approve" on your iOS or Android smartphone or watch. This improves the sign-on experience by making the verification process nearly instantaneous. For traditional secondary units, such as a token, you can copy a short-term password.
